while i want my skin to look hydrated, there is something about tradition lotions that i just cannot stand in the heat (the goop factor). light oil mists or gel formulas seem so much fresher. NIVEA q10 skin firming + toning gel-cream is a fast-drying gel that also seems to give an instant, subtle tightening, just a tiny squeeze. after 2 weeks of consistent use it helps to smooth and tone skin, which i see as an added bonus to a lotion whose texture i already adore for summer.
available at mass market retailers nationwide. NIVEA q10 line also includes a serum and a lotion. learn more about the line at niveausa.com.
